An excellent meal and ideal venue for an important business dinner. Service and our meals all exceeded expectations. Steaks cooked to perfection, great wine selections - chilled appropriately, wonderful desserts. Only suggestion would be to not pour from a newly opened bottle of wine into a glass that still has wine left over from the previous bottle.

This is an update to my last review on August 3. Received a thank you note from the server. What a nice touch.
Had such a great time, went back again for Restaurant Week and "The Generous Pour." Asked for the same server, Lindsey which contributed to another great evening.

Sat in a different location further inside, which is not as elegant as the atrium, but it was very quiet and private, which was also nice.
Their sirloin has the tenderness of a fillet, but the taste of a sirloin. Perfect.
Unfortunately, they were out of the Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake -:( so they nicely offered us any other dessert. Of course nothing tops a chocolate dessert (well most most of the time), but the excellent Cheesecake came very close.

Love the ambiance of the restaurant, very cosy. We had the prix fixe menu and I had the clam chowder, steak and espresso cake, all this for only $35. A deal!!! The food was excellent and our waiter, Angel was the best! Had a wondeful evening with my friends.

Exceptional steaks and great service. I have found the same to be true at other properties, as well. Certainly, this is one of the best "chain" steakhouses around.

Every time I dine here I am amazed at how good everything is. I took my sister for the first time and everything from the staff remembering me, haven't been since Mother's day, to them asking about my son, who was not with me to selecting my favorite table. As always it was clean and the noise level was minimum. My sister was greatly impressed with the service and the food blew her mind! For the apps to the dessert every was fantastic! They renew with each visit why this is my favorite restaurant. I was even given a gift to take home to my son! I love this place!

My friends and I went to Capital Grille for Restaurant Week and we were delighted with the ambiance, the quality of the food, and the overall experience. The Kona steak was superb, and the flourless chocolate cake was among the best I've ever had. We ate in the glassed-in addition to the restaurant, and the surroundings were very nice. It was somewhat noisier than I prefer, but we were still able to hold a conversation without much problem. I plan to return for special occasions and when I have guests in town.

Very affordable during restaurant week when you can get a great steak.

Typical Capital Grille fare but not the better of the chain restaurants. The steaks were a bit gray looking and over cooked. The two salmon dishes we ordered were HORRENDOUSLY overcooked and dry.

My husband and I went for our Anniversary and I can honestly say this was the best meal I ever had. They went out of their way to make our dinner special with complimentary champagne toast and dessert that were equally delicious. Both of our entrees were cooked perfectly and the service was unbelievable! I can't wait to go back!

The steaks were out of this world; very tender and flavorful. They were very accommodating as I wanted a smaller steak so as to have room for dessert. so I was able to order the 8 oz. filet mignon. I was also able to choose a sauce I wanted for it that was paired with another steak. The side dishes are very generous and enough for 3 people. Proscuitto mozzarella appetizer with 12 year old aged balsamic vinegar? Are you kidding me?? 5 stars!!! :o)

I was disappointed. There was a mix-up on my order at first and then when my steak did arrive it must have been sitting under the warmer for too long. My "medium" steak turned into "well-done".

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this location. Best decision we had because it far exceeded our expectations. Food was delicious! Loved the setting. Service was fantastic. No need to chase after the waiter to have your water refilled. Waitress was attentive in an unobstrusive way, which we appreciated. Our heartfelt thanks for a very enjoyable evening on this special occasion!

We choose from the summer restaurant week menu - $35 for prix fixe. This was a great deal and the food was fabulous. Being in your 20's means yo have a limited budget so the prix fixe was the perfect opportunity to try a high end restaurant without breaking the bank. I had the steak which was fabulous and my friend had the salmon which was really good. And our waiter was amazing, always checking in...which I remembered his name. I will definitely be coming back!

First time at this particular location-- ask for table in the "glassed-in" section. It my parent's anniversary and my birthday and the 4 of us had a memorable time. Service was exceptional and that was not easy given that it was GENEROUS POUR (wine) promotion. Bargain of the century-- $25 per person unlimited. Definitely helped to get things started on the early side before it became packed. The kona bone-in NY Strip was perfect; and the sides are generous. They comp-ed 2 desserts given our special occasion! The chef even accommodated Oysters Rockefeller request not on menu. Cap Grille really has their act together and you don't mind spending the money for a quality product in a great space with excellent service.

WE waited for over 15 minutes and had to call a waiter over to get attention. However the manager came over to us apologized for the delay, offered us a complimentary cocktail which we declined. He then brought over an appetizer for us to share. Very well handled my management.

I just dined at Capital Grille for the first time the other night with my boyfriend. It was a little late and it wasnt very crowded at all. I noted that it was my birthday in my reservation and when we arrived we had a great booth with subtle decorations on the table. We were given complimentary glasses of champagne and slice cake for myself at the end. I have to say that although the food was good, this actually wasnt one of my favorite steak places in the city food wise. However, the service was #1! The waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and attentive through the evening. The ambiance was also very nice. Overall I had a great birthday dinner.
